They include the area of all municipalities for which a specific district commission (Bezirkshauptmannschaft) is the responsible administrative authority. In the case of identical or similar-sounding political districts, the word "town" or "province" has been added in brackets to avoid confusion. However, these additional identifiers are not part of the official name. The 3-digit number for the political district is formed with one digit for the federal province (1 for Burgenland, 2 for Carinthia, 3 for Lower Austria, 4 for Upper Austria, 5 for Salzburg, 6 for Styria, 7 for Tyrol, 8 for Vorarlberg and 9 for Vienna) plus a 2-digit consecutive number (towns with charters are numbered first followed by the rural districts).
